Off-Label Use of Phakic Intraocular Lens with a "Piggyback" Technique.

Case Rep Ophthalmol 2018 Sep-Dec;9(3):465-472. Epub 2018 Nov 21.

University of Washington Department of Ophthalmology, Seattle, Washington, USA.

Purpose: We report a case of a highly myopic pseudophakic patient who received off-label placement of a phakic intraocular lens (pIOL) via a "piggyback" technique, allowing the placement of an intraocular lens (IOL) in his fellow eye, resulting in improved visual acuity and emmetropia.

Case Report: A 66-year-old, highly myopic, pseudophakic male with an IOL implant in his left eye was referred for second opinion for surgical options for his phakic right eye. Given the severe myopic status of both eyes, he received off-label placement of a posterior chamber pIOL with a piggyback technique for the pseudophakic left eye followed by standard cataract surgery and intraocular lens implantation in the right eye.

Gimbel Eye Centre, Calgary, Alta. Electronic address:

Objective: Although the literature on the implantable Collamer lens (ICL) suggests an increasing rate of anterior subcapsular cataract (ASC) development with increasing age and decreasing anterior chamber depth (ACD), the exact correlation is not known.

Mini-review: Far peripheral vision.

Vision Res 2017 11 11;140:96-105. Epub 2017 Sep 11.

Simpson Optics LLC, 3004 Waterway Court, Arlington, TX 76012, United States. Electronic address:

The region of far peripheral vision, beyond 60 degrees of visual angle, is important to the evaluation of peripheral dark shadows (negative dysphotopsia) seen by some intraocular lens (IOL) patients. Theoretical calculations show that the limited diameter of an IOL affects ray paths at large angles, leading to a dimming of the main image for small pupils, and to peripheral illumination by light bypassing the IOL for larger pupils. These effects are rarely bothersome, and cataract surgery is highly successful, but there is a need to improve the characterization of far peripheral vision, for both pseudophakic and phakic eyes.

Phake Intraokularlinsen.

Klin Monbl Augenheilkd 2017 Aug 9;234(8):1035-1047. Epub 2017 May 9.

Implanting phakic IOLs (PIOLs) in phakic eyes is regarded as an established option in refractive surgery for many years when treating high myopia, hyperopia or ametropia. Even for eyes which show a combination of refractive errors (including astigmatism) this can be an appropriate option. The surgery itself requires certain anatomical and refractive requirements, since, as with any intraocular procedure, there are different possibilities of complication depending on the chosen IOL.
